"Alvin and the Chipmunks" Director to Remake "Short Circuit"

Posted: August 5th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Alvin and the Chipmunks" Director to Remake "Short Circuit"Submit Comment
Back in 2008, Dimension Films acquired the remake rights to "Short Circuit" and hired original "Short Circuit" writers SS Wilson and Brent Maddock to pen the script. Then Dan Milano ("Robot Chicken") was brought on to do a re-write.

"We're bringing Number 5 into the 21st Century and taking advantage of the improvements in robotics that are so massive that robots are now performing heart surgeries in hospitals," said producer David Foster, adding that the robot's look won't change.

And then finally in 2009, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" director Steve Carr was signed to helm. Things apparently didn't work out, because Deadline is now reporting that Tim Hill (Hop, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties) has replaced him.

The original 1986 "Short Circuit" film revolves around an experimental robot manufactured to be a weapon until a lightning strike fills it with intelligence. It runs away and befriends a fractured family, while the military is in hot pursuit.

No please this is a classic movie, leave it alone.

Don't worry the remakes for Gremlins, E.T. And Rocky are up next.
